Bulk_Carrier (2504) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2015
This was poured into a pint glass. Bottle came from Batdorf, Annville PA. The appearance was a hazy red color with a slim bar pourís kind of white head. The smell mainly had a malty sweet caramel malts with a subdued grassy/earthy hoppiness to it. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to combine and give off a decent amount of light caramel notes in the aftertaste. The finish was quick. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat subdued. Overall, I say this was an okay American Amber ale that I could have again but nothing over the top.

From bottle. Lightly amber golden color. Aroma is grapefruit, oxidation, and toffee. Taste is similar, with some butter and bitter citrus notes. Nice taste, but just a little too bitter on the back end.

rondphoto (2606) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 18, 2014
bottle @ Jungle Jimís / Eastgate OH --- Slightly hazy dark amber, bubbly 1" ivory head, mottled curtain of lace. Taste is caramel malt that is intercepted by solid floral hops in the palate. Both malt and hops are up to the task, and move easily through a medium-length finish. Not a major brew, but does what it intends very well.
